Award winning Gruner:
Gruner Veltliner is a native Austrian white grape variety, that is best suited to climatic conditions with warm days and cool night, hence why the Adelaide Hills was chosen to be the Gruner capital of the southern hemisphere. A huge thanks to Larry and Marc at Hahndorf Hill who had the foresight to see the potential of Gruner Veltliner in the Adelaide Hills, and imported a number of clones directly from Austria. Mt Bera was chosen to be one of the first vineyards to plant this variety back in 2010/11. This year Winestate magazine in conjunction with the Austrian Wine marketing board conducted the Global Gruner challenge, in which there were 145 entries from across the world. The judging panel included one judge from Austria. Of the 145 entries, 8 wines achieved a full five star rating – 6 from Austria and 2 from Australia.
Mt Bera vineyards is proud to present our 5 star award winning Boundless Horizons Gruner Veltliner in the Reserve category. Read the review and tasting notes here.
